In 2013, the Province of Antwerp purchased the buildings which had housed the Folklore and Ethnographic museums and it earmarked the site for DIVA. In 2018, DIVA opened on Suikerrui in Antwerp.
Mission & vision
DIVA wants to be the hub of diamond, jewellery and silver in Flanders for the layman, enthusiast and professional.
DIVA's collection policy focuses on diamonds, jewellery and silver from the 15th century to the present, from Antwerp, Flanders and the Low Countries in an (inter)national context.
DIVA can count on the efforts of a team of enthusiastic museum employees. They are happy to answer your questions.
